TAKE TIME: Schedule for Sept. 2-7, 2013

Introduction: The vicious cycle of sin-affliction-repentance-deliverance continued. This week we will read about the judges beginning with Tola and ending with Samson. Some of what we will read will be downright disgusting.

Reading Assignment:
  • Monday - Judges chapter 10
  • Tuesday - Judges chapter 11
  • Wednesday - Judges chapter 12
  • Thursday - Judges chapter 13
  • Friday - Judges 14:1-15:20
  • Saturday - Judges chapter 16

Memory Verse

Review verses from previous weeks. The book of Judges is not known for verses that can be committed to memory.

Prayer Journal (ACTS)
  • Adoration - This week take time each day to praise God for being your deliverer.
  • Confession - Ask God to reveal hidden sin in your life and then confess it.
  • Thanksgiving - Thank God for times when He has delivered you from sinful circumstances.
  • Supplication - What are your prayer requests this week? List them for future reference so that you can see how God answers.

Search the Scriptures

Look for references for each of the following:
  • Promises that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?
  • References that either refer to or infer something about future events.
  • What does this passage teach about Jesus?
  • Commandments that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?

Putting the Word into Action

Sometimes people make almost impossible or perhaps downright foolish promises. (See Jephthah in the reading this week for a prime example!) We learned when reading the Pentateuch earlier in the year that God takes making promises or vows very seriously. He expects them to be kept. Is there anything you have promised God or another person that you would do that has remained unfulfilled? Ask Him to reveal anything like that to you. If it can still be completed then make a list of the necessary steps to complete it and then do them.
